10:03 am
unwavering, and i just wanted to share a story that i share with my office by the community response network crn which does a lot of violence prevention work working with youth who are at risk, if you will, and the story goes that there were a number of young people who were sort of hanging out outside of the bowling club, and when something likes that happens youth, kids look a certain way. what sometimes happens is the establishment gets worried and responds by calling the police. in this case summer much aligned with how she sees the world took it upon herself to talk to these young people and invite them into the club, and she works
10:04 am
with groups like the groups that work with at risk youth and find them a way to enjoy the facilities free of charge and that's the type of person she is and the type of business she runs one that recognizes you're the most successful when you're connected to the community and giving back, so it is in recognition of that amazing spirit and approach to business that it is truly my honor to recognize the mission bowling club which has amazing food as well, and so to summer peterson on behalf of the board of supervisors as the representative for district nine it is my honor to commend you for serving as a meeting space for the community, for hiring locally, that your belief that small businesses should be part of the community, for your commitment to public transportation and biking which
10:05 am
is clear if guand visit in terms how she promotes biking and transit for her customers and for your delicious food and welcoming environment and being a role model for other small businesses in the community and summer peterson thank you for everything that you do and great success to you. >> thank you. it's amazing. i never think about what i do in that way really. it just comes natural. we always say we can't have a strong business without a strong community and that's the only way i kind of see t i wanted to say thank you. we're only six months old but we do appreciate the recognition so thank you very much. it is really important to us. but i did want to say we are thrilled we are in a position already known as we are that we can give back to our community by yes serving amazing food and a fun
10:06 am
environment that we can incorporate the neighborhood. aside from hosting the nonprofit bowling days our restaurant offers specific menu items and a dollar from each item dollars to youth supporting projects and we rotate that out monthly to reach as many organizations as possible. some of the organizations in the district of root division and tee pees and for the childrens' reading and author's program that they have, and we also just hosted a police versus fire department bowl off for their toy drive charity and it's going to be an annual fundraiser now and in case you're wondering the fire department did win by over 80 pins but we're grateful to be part of a amazing community and neighborhood and we're thrilled

[applause] >> why don't we go now to district eight colleague, supervisor wiener. >> thank you mr. president. first of all i just want to associate myself with supervisor campos' remark about the mission bowling club. it's a wonderful addition to the neighborhood and we're grateful for summer for really helping us elevate sort of some of the problems with the mission special use district which almost prevented the club from opening and i of happy working with supervisor kim and campus for that and thank you for your
10:08 am
wonderful business. >> some so today i have the pleasure of recognizing and honoring a terrific kof a and restaurant in my district castro, castro tarts. if you guys want to come up now. castro tarts is on castro streets and has restaurants and cafes et cetera and it's a wonderful place to eat, but one thing that we sometimes don't have enough of is places that offer great food, but that are also affordable, and one of the terrific things about castro tarts it's a wonderful atmosphere whether to grab a cup of coffee or eat breakfast or a sandwich and a place that is
10:09 am
really affordable and neighbor focused business, and i will admit i'm biased because it's my regular cafe where i go all the time and another great thing about it is when you go in there even if you haven't come in for a month they remember your name they also remember what you ordered last time or maybe if there are three different things that you like to order and they ask you which one you want at that time so it's a great place to have in the neighborhood, so i am really thrilled to be honoring castro tarts today and why don't you all come up? trudy and melissa and william and thank you for being part of our neighborhood. thank you. did you want to say smg. >> thank you for all of the support and my family enjoy doing the business in the

10:18 am
[applause] >> thank you. supervisor olague. i have the honor of making the next presentation for my district, district three. let me start off by saying i hate restaurant appreciation month for two reasons. one, during the ceremony i get extremely hungry. secondly, san francisco we have the highest per capita number of restaurants of any city in the country, and my district apparently has the highest number of restaurants per square mile of any square mile in our city, and we have so many amazing restaurants it literally takes my staff several meetings and i to hash out who we think should be recognized every year and it's my honor to
10:19 am
recognize a relatively new restaurant in north beach and extremely loved in the neighborhood. i would like to invite up liz. i think i saw you back there. if you could step up to the microphone and liz is half of the partnership of dane and liz and the partners behind bottle cap. they lived in north beach sing 2008 and the story of bottle cap this amazing couple wondered why there wasn't any restaurants with the farm table approach and keeping things local and the fisheries and farming throughout california and bottle cap opened up in 2010 of the former location of the washington square bar and grill and for you to know it was quite a sight to bring in a new restaurant but they have certainly erks seeded all of our expectations. in
10:20 am
addition to great cocktails and organic and sustainable food at a affordable price they're a business to help show case the local arts. if you come tuesday through friday you will hear live music in the lounge and musicians that have been playing for decades. bottle cap hangs the work of local artists on the walls. the dining room has works showing every one to two months in rotation. they have hosted numerous charitable events and guest bartender tonight for events and receptions and fundraisers and for singing groups. i want to thank liz the work you're doing in employing folks and allowing your restaurant to be the site for community meetings that we work on difficult but hopefully
10:21 am
solvable issues and i want to take the opportunity to thank you and your husband what you're doing with bottle cap. thank you so much. >> thank you so much for the recognition. it's a tough business. it can be challenging and we appreciate the support very much. thank you.

10:27 am
to say that the beach chalet and the park chalet and the new one you opened is incredible places and the beach chalet is at the western end of golden gate park. there are tremendous features of amazing history of san francisco with wpa created by lam bow in the 30's and the art work shows the favor of the time and incredible for fans to see that the wpa created these art projects and this is a dream they created when they were 24 and 25 years old at sf state. i am reading from the seven by seven magazine. and how was the idea for the beach chalet done?
10:28 am
and in their early 20's at the time and this is lara speaking "i recently graduated from the beach chalet and came up for lease and we lived in the sunset and he had his eye on the spot for his dream restaurant. we were home brewing and decided brewing would be the perfect operation. he wrote the business plan for his final assignment at school and since i was a new mom i did leg work and literally before the web and my research was doesn't on the beach and checking with surfers and what their favorite foods were. that is from laura's writing and i want to thousands of people go there. i think as the giants win the world series there were be people at the
